Track Name: Shades Of Blue
You Said we had the rest, the rest of our lives to figure out this mess. Well I guess you changed your mind, like you do all the time, my ode to a bad romance.
The Days are rough, and the nights are rougher, the only thing about it my heart gets tougher and you were on my mind, The only thing that used to get me through are nights like these when I was thinking of you and I, I'm doing alright.
I've been here before, I've known girls like you in the past I only wish I could make us last. Sitting on the floor talking, drinking, kissing like before, instead we're doing Marshal's Dance.
The Days are rough, and the nights are rougher, the only thing about it my heart gets tougher and you were on my mind, The only thing that used to get me through are nights like these when I was thinking of you and I, I'm doing alright.
The Days are rough, and the nights are rougher, the only thing about it my heart gets tougher and you were on my mind, The only thing that used to get me through are nights like these when I was thinking of you and I, I'm doing alright. And I hope you are just fine.
Track Name: It's Fine
Its Ten Thirty in the morning and I'm craving whiskey, the bottle is empty, the flask is dry. The Morning is looking bleak just like all the others, what I really want is to get you off my mind.
Days, Weeks, Months have passed the drinks they only get stronger. The Longer the days means the sadder the nights. The Thought of her racing through the brain no sooner she’s gone her ghost comes haunting again.
And I don't know what I'm searching for anymore, and you just got the hell out, you walked right out the door and it's fine.
It's twelve thirty in the afternoon and I've got my handle, the shaking subsided everything's alright. To forgive, forget, neither an option to heal I guess well only in time.
And I don't know what I'm searching for anymore, and you just got the hell out, you walked right out the door and it's fine.
Every time I look at her I see her smiling, she’s happier than before, Every time I look at her I see her laughing, I guess it's time to shut the door and it's fine. It's fine It’s Fine It’s Fine It’s Fine. It’s Fine it’s Fine. It’s fine, it’s fine.
Track Name: Changes
I’m holding a candle its burning my hand, don’t you look back no you wouldn’t understand, oh cuz I know, that we have changed. With lowercase letters and uppercase Why’s you know we had something we both can’t deny, oh cuz I know, that we have changed. We’ve been dancing to this dance for just way to long, I question to myself just what went wrong, and I just answer that we have changed.

The long nights just sitting by myself, the phone calls are gone now like it’s off, all that I know is that life sucks to rearrange, cuz I see now that everything, everything has changed.

The fear overcame me the look in your eyes I knew this was it there was no compromise, oh cuz I know that we have changed. I could not comprehend it was glass in my face to be chasing a dream that I just shouldn’t chase, oh cuz I know that we have changed. The dance may be over the guests all went home, but I will still be there dancing along, oh cuz I know that we have changed.

Track Name: This Town
I’ll open up the door and let the silence scatter in, innocence now not the case and I’m up for anything, I just want to get the hell out of this town, I just want to get the hell out of this town. Take a deep breath step outside and I’ll walk out to the car, start it up and drive away and I’m not sure where I’ll go, I just want to get the hell out of this town, I just want to get the hell out of this town. Now we must take a journey and we all think do or die, but sometimes in this game of life we’re just strangers passing by and I want to get the hell out this town, I just want to get the hell out of this town, I just want to get the hell out this town, I just want to get the hell out of this town.
Track Name: Pink Hair and Tattoos
Walking the Streets of D.C. at night, Cold winter burn and a dull orange light with the smell of the city. I’ve been playing shows for years and hope to do more, the same it goes for Lord Baltimore but I’m restless, time expired. Wanna pack up my suitcase and hop in the car play twelve shows in a row and travel a far, keep on pushing, keep on picking. Faces in the crowd they come and they go, on to the next night five bucks are the door and I’ll notice one thing. Those pink haired tattooed girls they’ll never let you down, they’re always there when I need them around. Those pink hairs tattooed girls they’ll never let you down, they’re always there when I need them around.
Track Name: Waldorf Way and Winchester Ln.
Magic happened on the street on the corner of Waldorf Way and Winchester Ln. Casanova he was there so was Romeo in his chair, they turned out for the game. They all thought that they had win so they cheered all the way home to find out they were wrong.
Time is never what it seems when you’re living in your dreams and it turns out they’re nightmares, and the most you ever saw was the breakdown and the fall, but he’s clearing up alright.
Roses everywhere on the street on the corner of Waldorf Way and Winchester Ln. Now he’s walking left alone while you laugh and live and love his new foe. He couldn’t take it but he didn’t care wild emotions in his stare, but there’s nothing he could do.
Time is never what it seems when I’m living in my dreams and it turns out they’re nightmares, and the most you ever saw was the breakdown and the fall, but he’s clearing up alright.

Track Name: The Day the World Was Less
I woke up like every morning, slight hangover but ready to face the day, but gosh I wasn’t ready for the weight that was about to lay on me, She asked me if I saw him last night, I had and said I hugged him pretty tight, but something wasn’t right there were tears in her eyes the Day the World Was Less.
Stopping in my tracks fighting back the tears as she did the same, a story so horrendous but also just as senseless oh its such a shame. I’ll miss you every night and day, at your funeral I was sure to say, I can’t believe we’ll never hug again the Day the World Was Less
It will never be the same. You’ll never be forgotten, The day the world was less, the day the world was less, the day the world was less, the day that the world was less.
Track Name: November Chills
Maybe it’s a sign of the times; you told me we’d be fine on that cold November day. Questions asked by Im not getting answers the doors they all were locked, the keys were thrown away. Every end becomes a new beginning, Im not sure Im ready just yet, My heart is just as fragile as a mirror its breaking now I’ll deal with it somehow

Once you’re on your own and you start thinking, everything once good has gone away, you’ve just got to pick up the pieces, life’s too short to let it fade away.
Looking back I don’t regret a damn thing, maybe in time, we’ll be alright. Open windows for me to escape out now where from here, tell me my dear. The speakers feedback blazing in to my ear, it was your voice telling me to go home, but now all that Im left with is my self I’ll think aloud I’m not coming home
Once you’re on your own and you start thinking, everything once good has gone away, you’ve just got to pick up the pieces, life’s too short to let it fade away.
Once you’re on your own and you start thinking, everything once good has gone away, you’ve just got to pick up the pieces, life’s too short to let it fade away.
Track Name: Cheers to Results
To those Nights we can’t remember, the bottles got us by the hand and the head. To those words I didn’t know I was saying, to your heart as it was breaking inside, to the long stumble home to the frustration I am feeling to how I want you back but I’m already dead inside, to the world as it keeps on turning, to this drink I hold above my head up high.

Cheers to you, my friends loneliness, Cheers to you, The Great Pretender, Cheers to You, My pal heartache, Cheers to the rest of you with the same plight
I sit here wondering how things might have changed if I had just kept my mouth shut you might be here today, that’s the catch with wondering though it doesn’t change a thing, I’ll grab my guitar, bottle, and pen and here is what I have to say

Cheers to you, my friends loneliness, Cheers to you, The Great Pretender, Cheers to You, My pal heartache, Cheers to the rest of you with the same plight

Cheers to you, my friends loneliness, Cheers to you, The Great Pretender, Cheers to You, My pal heartache, Cheers to the rest of you with the same plight
Cheers to you, my friends loneliness, Cheers to you, The Great Pretender, Cheers to You, My pal heartache, Cheers to the rest of you with the same results
Track Name: My Pub
At the end of the day when you’re feeling tired, defeated and so out of pace, works got you down inspiration is low you wear a frown upon your face. Don’t look very far there is always a bar a pub that’s my kind of place
Smiles and Cheers they all welcome you in a stool with your name that’s your spot, Mama T gives you hugs and may buy you a round, if you’re lucky you might get a shot. Beer and Whiskey they flow with folks that you know, hey man that’s something you’ve got!
This is my pub, grab a chair we’re all getting drunk. Reflections are made are tabs are all paid it’s time to go for the night
I feel right at home with my friends in this place, I know I am safe and I’m sound. There is always a pub when I’m feeling blue my friends are there when Im down but before I go there’s one this you should know ‘Thank You I feel better now’
This is my pub, grab a chair we’re all getting drunk. Reflections are made are tabs are all paid it’s time to go for the night
This is my pub, this is my pub. Reflections are made are tabs are all paid, Let Wagon Wheel close out the night.
